How can i change dates on my course to work throughout the course?
In order to help could you let us know if you are a student or an Instructor? If you are a student, you can't change the dates on your course. If you are an Instructor you should be able to change the dates by clicking on one of your assignments and then the "edit" button. This should work as long as you have full Instructor permissions and your Institution hasn't limited them.
If you have a lot of assignment dates to change you might consider this - Adjust All Assignment Dates on One Page
